On line MBA , Preferably accredited, without GMAT & TOEFL/IELTS


Are there any programs who do not require GMAT & TOEFL/IELTS? For very senior executives with 20 plus years of public administration/higher management experience?

Programmes that are not taught in English will not require English. Otherwise you will need to show any university that you can speak and write well in the language of study.

Agreed. However, a few value for money online programs do provide exemption, such as Macquarie, Bradford or Warwick. I was wondering if there are more such programmes.

George Pat...

I have never heard of any program that is in English and does not require you to know... English....
Even those you mentioned, will ask you for proof of language!

On previous posts you said you have gmat 650, and offers from henley, cass, manchester, strathclyde, thunderbird

Manchester is very good option, i'd take their offer

Thanks George. I am searching this on behalf of someone else. He is fluent in (read, write and speak) English (20+ years of work experience) but doesn't want to take TOEFL/IELTS or GMAT. I already mentioned a few programs and they are, prima-facae, willing. But on cost consideration, I am told to explore further.

Is your friend also exploring EMBA programs? EMBAs are generally designed for people with a lot of experience and who are currently working - many have in-class attendance structured around busy work schedules, such as one weekend a month or a week per semester and the like.

Also, some of these EMBAs, especially those aimed at people with a lot of work experience, may waive the GMAT.

"Worth it?" Yes, these degrees are typically worth the investment - look at the salary statistics - but value depends specifically on depends on your goals.

Keep in mind that online MBAs do not typically allow for substantial career 'shifts.' Graduates of these programs often stay in the industry they were in before they started the program. You might see people change functions, but all in all, these are designed for people who want to stay on the track they're on and just get a bit further ahead. Because of this, business schools often don't offer the same level of career support as they do for their full-time MBA'ers.

If you're looking to change industries or have substantial career support, you should probably do a full-time MBA instead.
